Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', [[spoiler: Charlotte Linlin, AKA "Big Mom" of the Four Emperors, gained the power of her Soul Soul Fruit after her caretaker, Mother Caramel, "disappeared" on Linlin's sixth birthday. What makes it this trope is that Mother Caramel was earlier shown to already have that power and it's heavily implied that Caramel was eaten by Linlin.]] This implies that a Devil Fruit's power can be gained by eating someone who has already eaten that particular Devil Fruit.

** In ''Imperishable Night'', several of the {{youkai}} in the player teams suggest to their human counterparts that they eat the immortal [[BonusBoss Mokou Fujiwara's]] guts/liver, saying that a human eating an immortal's guts would grant them immortality as well. Yuyuko, on the other hand, considers eating Mokou's guts herself despite being a youkai, [[ImAHumanitarian just because she thinks it'd be tasty]].

* Everyman, initially from the ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'' series at Creator/DCComics, can assume the shape of any being he's consumed a sample of. Since [[{{Superman}} Lex Luthor]] was the one approving the power he got, giving "eats people" to a guy named [[SilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal]] was probably deliberate.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'': Gaki has a skill which gives her a chance of swallowing an enemy whole, dealing damage to them, taking their buffs and making them lose a turn (because they're in her stomach, duh). She will then ''[[{{Squick}} regurgitates the victim back]]'' if they haven't died from this attack already. The best part? This skill ''completely ignores'' Seimei's damage-stopping DeflectorShield.

The Cannibalism Superpower is the ability of a person, mutant, monster, demon, alien, EldritchAbomination, etc; to [[TheAssimilator absorb super powers from other characters]] by eating them. Sometimes this also allows the user to take [[GeneticMemory the character's memories]] or [[YouAreWhoYouEat physical appearance]] too. Obviously, this is a power more suited to super villains, since eating people implies killing them. Please note however, [[Administrivia/TropesAreFlexible that this trope is not limited to villains]] (granted that would make for a pretty strange hero).

This is what happens when BrainFood mutates into something squickier. It's a mixture of AllYourPowersCombined with ImAHumanitarian (Of course the victim doesn't have to be of the same species). Thinking of it another way, it's a more macabre version of PowerCopying.

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', Cell gains power by absorbing people, so he has a habit of depopulating entire towns. More importantly, he gains a massive upgrade, both in terms of power and physical appearance, by absorbing each of Dr. Gero's Androids.
